Compassionate support, exceptional care
South Oaks Hospital provides comprehensive, individualized care for patients dealing with acute psychiatric illness or substance use disorder. We understand that these are difficult and sometimes frightening conditions, so we're committed to respectfully and compassionately helping them heal.

A history of excellence

A key part of Northwell Health, South Oaks Hospital is community-based and nationally recognized. Our extensive range of inpatient and outpatient services for children, teens, adults and seniors focuses on improving our patients’ functioning at home, work and school, and in their relationships with family, friends and others.

Our inpatient services include child and adolescent, adult and senior units, as well as substance use or opioid use disorder treatment, including services tailored for healthcare professionals dealing with addiction. Our outpatient services include comprehensive behavioral services for young people ages 5 to 21, an adolescent partial hospitalization program and treatment for substance use disorder.

Encouragement, advice & understanding

Find support in your journey to recovery

Support groups provide a safe space and can be a valuable part of the journey past substance use disorder, whether you’re dealing with the issue yourself or have a family member or friend who is struggling.
